WILMINGTON, North Carolina – Junior Jeanne Metivier was once again recognized for her excellence in the classroom as she named to the Women’s Golf Coaches Association All-American Scholar Team for a second consecutive season.
Metivier is one of 624 women's collegiate golfers at the Division I, II and III levels to be recognized with the prestigious honor. The criteria for selection to the NGCA All-American Scholar Team are some of the most stringent in all of college athletics as recipients must have a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.50 and appear in at least half of a team's regular season events.
"Jeanne is an exceptional student who continuously strives to excel in the classroom,” said UNCW Head Coach Cindy Ho. “She devotes tremendous time to her studies and has been rewarded for her dedication, hard work, and commitment to her academics. I am extremely proud of Jeanne in earning her second consecutive WGCA All-Scholar award. She continues the strong tradition of academic excellence in our women's golf program."
A native of Arcachon, France, Metivier earned All-American Scholar Team recognition after posting an 82.94 stroke average in seven events during the 2012-13 season. A Business Administration major with a 3.98 cumulative GPA, Metivier recorded her best result of the season with a tie for 24th in Lady Pirate Intercollegiate in October and matched her career low with a 73 in the final round of the FSU Match Up in February.
